New Build. Need Suggestions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
after recently parting ways with my SMA8 build, i've started to "plan" my new new.

Currently, i'm leaning towards the following (hardware-wise):

MSI z170 Mortar
6700k
G.Skill TridentZ 16gb
1070/80 (haven't decided yet)

i haven't purchased anything as of yet because i can't decide on a case... any suggestions?

i'm been looking at the Thermaltake Core P5 (wall mounted) as well as the CaseLabs BH7 (although the lead times aren't ideal).

...help.

Between those two, CaseLabs wins hands down.

Hey,

What res screen you got? 1070 is suffice for 1440p running the latest games from 55-60fps+ on max settings. But if you got the money go 1080

i'm still on the BenQ XL2411Z @ 1080p. i haven't upgraded that yet as i don't do a tremendous amount of gaming maybe 3-5 hours every other day. hell im not even on the computer than much anymore... so the $200+ extra from the 1070 to the 1080 just didnt make sense to me. on top of that, adding another ~$200 for watercooling components for the GPU.
